Primary type information: Primary type material: holotype queen. Primary type locality: Brazil: (no further data). Primary type depository: NHMW. Type notes: Ješovnik & Schultz, 2017a: 71, suggest the following modifications: Type-material: lectotype worker, 2 paralectotype workers. Type-locality: Mexico: Veracruz, Córdoba [18.8808, -96.9272] (E. Norton). Type-depositories: NHMW (lectotype); NHMW, USNM (paralectotypes). Type-specimen: CASENT0915956. In their discussion Ješovnik & Schultz, 2017a: 78, argue for Mexico as type-locality, and workers as type material, but Mayr mentions only Brazil, and only a solitary queen is described and figured.
